THE 

ARCHITECTURAL FORUM 

SPECIAL REFERENCE NUMBERS 

T-JEGINNING in 1922, The Architec-

architectural publishing, by devoting every 
third issue exclusively to one type of 
building,. These are known as special

1923 six have been published as follows : 

Schools August. 1922 

Hospitals December, 1922

Hotels November, 1923

teriors and readable plans with graphic scales 
together with cubic foot costs representative of the 
best work in all sections of the country.

— from thr Journal. R. I. li. A. 

In turning the pages of a recent issue 
of our esteemed English contemporary, 
the Jnimal tt <hr Rejtat TnttituU tt Kr,n,h 
Architects, we happened upon a review 
which epitomizes our editorial ambitions: 

"This section of practice 'hospital 
work) has been exemplified in a very 
remarkable decree in the December(1922) 
Number of 77,, Architectural Farum which 
is what is termed a Hospital Reference 
Number. Everv sectional problem has 
been assembled and discussed in fifteen 
essays, voluminously illustrated and 
exhibiting a fine array of recent exteriors 
which are of remarkable and abiding 
interest and of real architectural value. 
This bulky quarto is set down in the 
midst of 170 pages of practical illustrated 
advertisements of hospital requirements 
of much interest and very suggestive, 
and, apart from the subject matter under 
review, deserving of more than passing 
notice."

What white pigment is to the Painter 

Atlas White Portland Cement 
is to the architect 




SUPPOSE the painter had to tone and shade his colors with a basic gray 
pigment. Would clear or true colors be possible? 

In stucco, scrafitto and much other decorative architecture the same 
applies. Consider Atlas White the basic pigment, making possible true, 
clear and permanent colors. Colored sands, mineral pigments or marble 
chips give endless variety of possible colors. 

And added to this quality is permanence, for Atlas White is a true 
Portland Cement, with all the strength and permanence of this material, 
building into stucco textures Listing beauty. 

The adaptability of this material to different types of architecture, dif- 
ferent moods of the individual architect, makes it as real a medium for 
artistic expression as the pigments on a Painter's palette, — a fact which 
should not be overlooked when considering more utilitarian qualities of 
permanence and fire-safeness of Atlas White. 

The Atlas Portland Cement Company gladly supplies 
the architect with any information he wishes concern- 
ing the ?nethod of handling and applying Atlas White.

Electrical Information 
for Architects 

The broad scope of the Architect's service in rec- 
ommending the best materials for many types of 
construction requires a constant source of up-to- 
date information on the products available. 

The progress in the electrical industry has been 
marvelous. The General Electric Company, a pio- 
neer in this work, has always maintained a policy 
of thorough test and approval before offering its 
products in the market, to the end that the G-E 
monogram may mean first of all — that the prod- 
uct it distinguishes is a practical, trustworthy 
device. 

This company's advertisements now appearing in 
the leading Architectural and other business pub- 
lications give important information about electri- 
cal equipment that goes into a modern building. 

A complete catalog of the entire line of G-E wir- 
ing devices may be obtained for the asking. A 
ready guide to electrical equipment with Bulletin 
references may also be found in Sweet's Architec- 
tural and Engineering Catalogs. 

G-E specialists connected with every district office 
of the company are at the command of architects 
wishing authoritative advice on all electrical 
matters.

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION 



The experience of that organization in the construction of Factories, Mills, Warehouses and other Industrial and Mercantile Buildings 
and Power Plants well equips us to serve architects and owners desirous of securing the best in construction. This experience 
covers all classes of construction with many repeat orders from some of the best people in New England. 



This Company was incorporated in Massachusetts in 1910 as 

New England Concrete Construction Company 



and continued under this style until the demands upon it for brick and timber and other forms of construction, the growing undesira- 
bility of territorial and specialty names, together with suggestions of many friends, made it appear that a change was desirable and the 
present form was adopted. Our tools and equipment are of the best and latest and such as to enable us to handle efficiently and 
economically either large or small projects for those who are particular as to quality of the work desired. Our financial responsibility 
is equal to all requirements. Bank references if you want them. We solicit your inquiries. We are affiliated with Associated 
General Contractors of America, American Society of Civil Engineers, Master Builders Association of Boston, Building Trades 
Employers Association and Boston Chamber of Commerce, all by invitation.

Based on our "predicated experience." allow us to suggest, in plans 
for greenhouses you always provide for possible additions. In eight 
cases out of eleven the need arises. The side entrance as a 
feature of this single house, provides an admirable connection for 
a duplicate house as suggested on the plan 



For Three Quarters of a Century 

ISN'T wisdom largely predicated experience? The more the experi- 
ence, then the greater the wisdom. With this in mind it seems 
entirely pardonable for us to stress at times our greenhouse experience 
covering close to three-quarters of a century. From Hell Gate to 
Golden Gate, the country over, are examples of our "predicated experi- 
ence". Let us co-operate with you when you have a greenhouse problem

GAS IS BOSTONS FUEL 



11 




/^^■n /""^OT ONCE since gas was 

^-^ /y first used in Boston, back in 

Cj \ 1823, has it ever failed. It 

is the one fuel you can 

always rely upon getting. 

And it is Boston's fuel because it answers 
the requirements of city life, providing a 
service that fits exactly with modern ideas 
of efficiency. 

Gas is the ultimate fuel for all purposes 
and must eventually supplant all solid fuel 
in order to conserve the needed by- 
products which are lost when raw fuels 
are consumed. 

New and better equipment to keep step with the 
steady advancement in greater uses of gas is 
constantly being supplied. And even in the product 
itself it is not unlikely improvements will develop 
from scientific research now under way. 

Consider gas carefully 
in all your plans

those especially designed by architects, and have added 
a number of adaptations of famed Old World subjects. 
All Ferrocraft Grilles are painstakingly hand-tooled by 
skilled metal crafters. Do not confuse these grilles with 
the usual foundry's ornamental cast iron work.

15th Century Italian Renaissance 
Polychrome Terra Cotta by- 
Andrea del la Robbia 



Architecture of the past, which has 
stood the test of time structurally as 
well as from an artistic point of view, 
is the basis of much that is best in 
modern architecture. 

Many of the most beautiful buildings 
of the Italian Renaissance were 
executed in Terra Cotta. 

Precedent and practical considerations 
authorize the sincere use of Terra 
Cotta today.

LUXEBERRY WOOD FINISH 
NOW MADE IN DULL 

Three generations ago Berry Brothers' original Hard 
Oil was used by expert wood finishers everywhere 
for all fine interior work. 

Those workmen of the old school knew quality and 
demanded it. As a result, specimens of their work, 
untouched these many years and in perfect condition 
still, are now and then to be found in an old mansion 
of yesterday. 

Berry's original Hard Oil is now known as Luxeberry 
Wood Finish. 

Dull Luxeberry enables present-day painters to attain 
superb deep-toned effects without rubbing. Like- 
wise it permits architects to meet prevailing require- 
ments for dull finishes without increasing labor costs 
or sacrificing quality. 

What can be accomplished with the brush alone .... 
when Dull Luxeberry Wood Finish is used .... will 
amaze you if you are not already familiar with this 
remarkable finish.

No. 60 

SMITH SMOKELESS boiler 

With Oxygen Torch 

For Burning High Volatile 

Bituminous Coals 



tt ^- °^ 




The No. 60 Smith Boiler with oxygen torch for burning all fuels 
marks a distinct scientific advance in boiler construction 

The main condition to be met in burning high volatile bituminous coals without producing 
smoke is a sufficient quantity of air for complete combustion of gases. Naturally the quantity 
of air necessary varies with the condition of the fire. 1§ In the No. 60 Smith Smokeless Boiler, 
air is admitted thru the oxygen torch. The controls are conveniently placed at the front of the 
boiler and observation apertures are provided so that the regulation may be certain and 
efficient.

SAMSON SPOT SASH CORD 



Trade Mark Res. V. S. Pat. Off. 



Made of extra quality stock, carefully inspected and guaranteed free from all imperfections of 
braid or finish. Can be distinguished at a glance by our trade mark, the Colored Spots, 
used onlv with this qualit\. 

B\ using Samson Spot Cord you can assure your clients of uninterrupted service for twenty- 
five vears or more, "iou will also protect them from the annovance and expense of breaking 
cords, which will quickly begin if they use ordinary roughly braided cord. Common sash 
cord frequently contains a loaded centre or core, put in to increase the weight and the price 
per foot. This construction makes the cord wear out very quickly in running over the pulleys. 

The difference in cost between Spot Cord and the cheapest kind is small in comparison with 
the expense of replacing one broken cord.

From a painting 

by Arthur Kelley 



Home of Roger \V. Babson, Wellesley Hills, Mass.; Benjamin Proctor, Jr., Architect. 
Ideal TYPE A Heat Machine and American Radiators installed bv Barber Co., Boston 



© ARCO 1915 



When Roger Babson invests in warmth 



THOUSANDS of discerning investors 
have profited by Roger Babson's busi- 
ness reports and financial service. 
Recently Mr. Babson made an investment 
on his own account, and these paragraphs 
are from his letter concerning it: 

"The TYPE A Boiler installed in my resi- 
dence is what you call it — a 'Heat 
Machine'," he writes. "During the 
coldest weather we attend to it only 
twice a day and at times it can be left 
sixteen hours without attention. 

"My experience with the regular 
type of boiler in my old residence 
leads me to believe that the Type A 
is fully 20% more economical." 

Mr. Babson often advises his clients 
to "take a loss" by selling a bad 
investment, and put the money 




into a security with assured earning power. 

May we suggest that this same advice might well 
be given to clients who are more impressed with 
economy in the initial cost of their heating 
plant than economy in fuel consumption? 

For the Ideal TYPE A Heat Machine is a life- 
time investment. Its unique construction as- 
sures a saving of from 20% to 33' 3% in fuel. 
In a few years the initial cost is paid 
back, and thereafter it continues to 
pay a dividend each year that can 
never be passed. 

To every Architect and Heating En- 
gineer who has not full specifica- 
tions, sizes, performance and 
construction details of the Ideal 
TYPE A in file, we offer a complete 
book describing them. Your name 
on your letterhead sent to either 
address below will bring it at once.
